Published: Wed 12 Sep 2018 11:25 AM
The impact of tourism on Kaipara’s infrastructure has been recognised within the recent grants distributed by the Minister of Tourism Kelvin Davis from the Tourism Infrastructure Fund (TIF) today (SUBS: 11 September 2018).
Mayor of Kaipara District, Dr Jason Smith welcomed the funding from the TIF and said “Good things come in threes and we’ve scored a perfect hat-trick here. Adding these upgraded facilities to existing Kaipara ones is better than a Royal Flush”
The total cost of the projects identified is $917,240 with the TIF providing $486,684. The Council’s share for each project varied, but in total Council is required to fund related resource and building consent costs.
The projects approved for support were prioritised to improve the visitor experience for those turning left at the Brynderwyn’s to see what the West Coast of Kaipara has to offer.
Matakohe Toilet and Footpath will refurbish the toilet block in the cemetery as well as connecting the Matakohe Township to the cycle ways to be finished alongside the Matakohe Bridge Replacement.
Maungaturoto Toilet block and carpark is a complete demolish and rebuild, based on a community provided design, along with three carpark spaces behind the block.
Bayly’s Beach Access Boardwalk and Toilet Update is a boardwalk connecting the carpark to the existing toilets, with a façade refresh and maintenance with the boardwalk then continuing beyond to the beach.
It is expected, now that funding has been approved, the projects listed above will be commenced within the next calendar year.
